Supporting 2nd Grade Writers of Nonfiction – A New Unit of Study

Second grade teachers are receiving a new unit of study for 2nd grade informational writing, The How-to Guide for Nonfiction Writing.  This unit, created by  the Calkins’ team at Teachers’ College, serves to provide more foundational preparation, and as a transition between the first and third grade information writing units.

Thirty teachers became familiar with the new resource and engaged in planning for our young writers last week.  Another introductory session is scheduled with time for planning:  Saturday, January 21st ,  9:00 am – 12:00 pm, Evergreen Room, Tan Complex.

Each participant will receive a copy of the unit, and for the 3 hour session, will receive professional rate of pay and 3 clock hours. Because the majority of the time will be engaged in planning, teams are encouraged to attend together.
